Overview Trumer is an Austrian-based brewery with facilities in Salzburg and Berkeley. Unlike their Munichand Pilsen-based peers, they focus on a single brew: German-styled pils.

Flavors and aromas Trumer takes the Bavarian approach to pilsner beer: a much more focused hop bitterness than the rounder Pilsen examples. Our tasters were enthusiastically receptive to the bright, spicy hop nose and the focused bitterness, which was a little less laser-like than some of the pilsners from Munich. The aftertaste was a little harsh, but the opportunity to sample traditionally styled pils in fresh bottles that haven’t been subjected to long voyages at sea is worth taking.
